The Culling Game arc is an unprecedented act of jujutsu terrorism that occurs right after the Shibuya Incident. Sukuna — who’s been inside Yuji Itadori’s body, has finally jumped into action in that arc. But do you know the creator of Jujutsu Kaisen actually hinted at this biggest twist years ago?
In the Jujutsu Kaisen manga chapter 212, Sukuna completely took over Megumi’s body. No doubt it came as an unexpected event for fans. But it looks as if this is something Jujutsu Kaisen has been building up to for a while. It’s because Akutami had actually hinted at this big plan for Megumi during an interview on Fuji TV’s Mando Kobayashi program back in 2021.
Gege Akutami Already Teased Megumi’s Sukuna Possession
During an interview on Fuji TV’s Mando Kobayashi program in 2021, Gege Akutami talked about his plans to wrap up the series within two years. He also mentioned having endings in mind for both Yuji and Megumi, and it seems like those plans are still on track based on recent updates.
What’s interesting is that while Akutami had set endings for both Yuji and Megumi, Sukuna’s fate was unclear at that point. Sukuna’s fate was uncertain back then, and when the host brought up Sukuna’s interest in Megumi, it looked like Akutami was about to drop a big spoiler, but he got censored.
The creator went on to say (via comicbook.com) — “with Fushiguro Megumi, [Sukuna] can create a world as he wants it to be” but that got cut off by more censoring. At that time, it was not clear what he was talking about but as we look back, it makes sense. Gojo is killed by Megumi now after Sukuna overtook his body. Do you think Gojo will ever return?
Will There Be the Return of Gojo Satoru in Jujutsu Kaisen After Megumi (Possessed By Sukuna) Killed Him?
Now Sukuna overtook Megumi and killed Gojo with a powerful slash that chopped his body in half. The person who technically killed Gojo is none other than his own student Megumi. Gojo was a fatherly figure to Megumi as he started taking jujutsu training from sensei Gojo at a young age to prepare for the dangers ahead.
Jujutsu Kaisen fans all over the world are still in shock after what went down in the last chapter, where Gojo Satoru met his end. No doubt, it was an emotional rollercoaster ride for readers.
After his loss, fans are still hoping for his comeback. But Akutami has surprised everyone by sealing Gojo’s fate permanently. Maybe he could choose a path of rebirth in the upcoming chapters.
And the mystery of Gojo’s Reverse Cursed Technique (which he got back but didn’t use), adds another twist to the story. Is there a possibility of Gojo making a return, maybe in a different way? Let’s see.
